    Hi all,
    I have appointments all day tomorrow, I will try and stop in to say hi between appointments. I wish I could be around to help, and thank you to all that post the updates..........I sure hope the jury gets to see it all. Praying hard for the families tonight, I just can't imagine the pain and then having to sit through so many trails. (((hugs)))

    ADA Leland Price reading the presentment - all counts against GT (there are forty-something counts)

    Families:


    Gary is sitting to left of Deana, and he's staring down GT. I'm not sure who the tall man is, sitting between Deena and Mary.

    Jaimie's twitters:

    - Jury coming in and we're off to the races in Thomas trial

    - State will read indictment which takes 4ever and a day and then judge will m st elements of each charge

    - Purpose of this snoozefest is give jurors elements state must prove so they can judge evidence accordingly

    - Me? I'm wishing someone would pull up Thomas' sagging pants. For security reasons he's not allowed to wear belt

    - Clearly the laws' crafters never met some of more undignified legislators

    Gary and Deena - GT and defense team, as Price reads charges:


    So far, I have seen no camera views from front of courtroom. I hope we aren't going to be stuck with these views from back here the whole time.

    Price is finished reading counts - I think there were 46 or 47. Now judge is instructing jury about their notebooks, the offenses, etc...

    Meanwhile, a new article is up:

    Coleman denied reprieve
    Judges say no to pretrial appeal on fed immunity deal


    A three-judge panel has hit torture-slaying suspect Vanessa Coleman with a double whammy, casting aside her pretrial appeal request and casting doubt on a post-trial appellate victory.

    The state Court of Criminal Appeals on Friday issued a six-page ruling denying Coleman a reprieve from trial in the January 2007 torture slayings of Channon Christian, 21, and Christopher Newsom, 23. The chief reason? She likely won't be able to convince the appellate court that state prosecutors should be bound by an immunity agreement inked by federal prosecutors.

    Jaimie's Tweets:

    Defense Dillard - "ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Thomas pleads not guilty 2 each and every one of counts"

    So u'll get my shorthand: defense will be ID'd as Dillard and Steve (Johnson btw), prosecutors Price and TK

    Nothing up on either site so far. Crossing fingers.

    Judge is going over the counts with the jury now.
